Nigeria: Muslims attack Catholic church, burn a priest to death

There is no identifying information as to the attackers in the report below, but my contacts in Nigeria inform me that in this case yet again they were Fulani herdsmen, that is, Islamic jihadis who are terrorizing the Christians of the land in efforts to establish an Islamic caliphate in West Africa.


Aside from the snark, what a despicable and cowardly group of people to do this.

Parents will go to great lengths to teach their children a valuable lesson when they screw up.

However, one father is wondering if he may have taken teaching his step-daughter a lesson too far after she was arrested and he refused to bail her out of jail.


The man let his stepdaughter spend the night in jail after she was caught underage drinking at a party.
Sharing his story on Reddit's r/AmITheA–hole subreddit, the stepfather attempted to defend his decision.


Stepdad is an idiot for putting it on the internet. That's why you have drinking buddies.

Will High School Guidance Counselors read this story? Will College Admissions? Doubtful, very doubtful.

Considering the cost of higher education, it's no surprise that many students hope to pursue a major that will snag them a well-paying gig once they graduate.

In a recent survey of job seekers by the job-search platform ZipRecruiter, 44% of respondents with college degrees said they regretted choosing their major — with English, communications, sociology, and marketing management falling under the most regretted majors. Within each field, the survey found, the highest-paid respondents were more likely to be happy about their college-major choice.

While many college advisors will tell you that no major is truly useless — even ZipRecruiter found that of those who regretted their choice of major, 72% said they would choose it again — job experts caution against certain majors that limit your career options and salary potential.

Here are 12 majors that are unlikely to get you a good return on your investment.
